Teaching and learning methods

During your training in anatomy, you will receive tuition using a wide variety of methods from expert staff including tutorials, lectures, group work, laboratory classes and dissection based classes. As such you will develop a wide range of skills useful in an anatomical and clinically applied environment.

These skills will aid in teamwork, scientific exploration, problem solving and identifying relevant laboratory protocols.

Assessment methods

The course is assessed by a variety of different methods including multiple choice questions, group presentations, “spot” examinations where anatomical structures have to be identified, or potentially, applied anatomy has to be demonstrated through data interpretation, and group work through continuous assessment.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Human Anatomy will provide comprehensive anatomical training which could be a platform for further study in the field.

It could also help enhance an individual’s clinical portfolio for a specialty related to the surgical, paramedical and allied health professionals practice which requires an in-depth anatomical knowledge.
